This is basically the carbon tax that was on the ballot last November. It got voted down so now they made a few changes and are introducing it straight to the legislature to bypass the voters.

It works out to a 10% fuel tax calculated after the federal taxes so you get to pay taxes on your taxes. It also adjusts for inflation every year and adds 3.5% just for fun.

The tax is also on fuel for heating and power as well as aviation fuel. The only industries immune are the aluminum, concrete, and agriculture(not including crop transport). The tax isn’t even going towards infrastructure but education.

The best part is that they even admit that poor people will be the hardest hit. But don’t worry they are earmarking 250 million dollars for clean mass transit so the poors can give up their cars and ride the bus.

God damn it Washington.
